^ Boss, bakit walang UM...? Aren't they the defending champions in basketball?

The University of Manila has filed for a leave of absence this season in order to allow the school to fix and resolve some internal problems. We wish to give the school and its officials due respect and not elaborate any further.

Last year, the Hawks copped both the Senior and Junior Division titles in NAASCU Season XI.

ST. CLARE guns for its first ever title when it collides with Centro Escolar today in Game 2 of their National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (Naascu) men’s basketball title playoffs at Makati Coliseum.

The Saints, who won Game 1 last Thursday, 82-77, will lean on their powerful lineup and their big desire to finally make it to the champion’s roster in the 11 a.m. match.

“We have one foot inside the championship door but it’s not over until we get one more win,’’ said St. Clare coach Jinno Manansala. “We still have to work very hard and prepare for the game because I’m very sure they will make some adjustments for Game 2.’’

The Scorpions, who are also in their first title series appearance, were in the thick of the fight in Game 1 until the final period with strong performance from Axel Garcia and Ryan Beldad.

CEU held St. Clare’s gunners Jeff Viernes and Eugene Torres at bay with a solid defense, but Saints managed to pull through behind unheralded wingmen Mark Robin Dulalia and Dennis Santos.

“I give my respect to my teammates they were really a revelation,’’ said Viernes, who nevertheless scored 38 points, including six straight to ignite an early fourth quarter rally that put the Saints ahead for good.

Viernes is hoping to close his collegiate career on a bright note before embarking on a PBA D-League career with Torres.

CEU is coached by former amateur stalwart Egay Macaraya who steered San Sebastian-Cavite to back-to-back titles in the league.

But Manansala, son of former PBA star Jimmy Manansala, is no stranger to a title series as he mentored University of Manila to championship last year. Both SSC-Cavite and UM are on indefinite leave from the league.

CLARE completed its historic rise from league doormat to champion yesterday.

Dragged by a determined Centro Escolar side into overtime, St. Clare held on to prevail, 78-74, and sweep the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (Naascu) men’s basketball championship at Makati Coliseum.

The Saints, whose best finish was third place in 2003, hacked out a 2-0 record in the best-of-three series to capture their first title in the league they helped formed along with the defunct University of Manila 12 years ago.

“It’s sweet victory for us,” said St. Clare president and Naascu chief Dr. Ernest Jay Adalem. “We have proven to the community that even cellar-dwellers can one day become champions.”

Adalem said that while St. Clare won the title by dropping just one game all season, the climb was filled with hardship and frustrations.

“There were many people who were willing to help us with our program,” said Adalem in the din of celebrations.

St. Clare gained a lot after UM closed its basketball program following its victory last year. The Saints not only acquired UM coach Jinno Manansala but key players Jeff Viernes and Eugene Torres as well.

“I guess we have that distinction of becoming back-to-back champions with two different teams,” said Manansala, a former University of Santo Tomas enforcer at the UAAP who chose basketball coaching over a career in nursing.

“We have been practicing since December last year, because we know that we are forming a new, revamped team. Our hard work paid off,” added Manansala, son of former national player and PBA star Jimmy Manansala.

The Saints opened the season by winning their first 10 games before absorbing their only loss, a shocker from last year’s runner-up STI.

“That took a lot of pressure from us because after that we were no longer thinking of a sweep but just to win the title,” said the 5-foot-9 Viernes.

Playmaker Viernes and Torres are in their last season in the league.

STI defeated Amacu, 80-63, to clinch third place even as the Baby Scorpions dumped the STI Baby Olympians, 90-80, for the juniors title.

The scores:

ST. CLARE 78—Viernes 31, Torres E. 14, Gil 12, Santos 9, Jamito 6, Lunor 3, Dulalia 2, Amboludto 1.

CEU 74—Garcia 15, Batino 15, Pedrosa 11, Abundo 10, Alquisalas 8, Magbitang 6, Guillen 4, Parale 4, Beldad 0, Banua 0.

Quarters: 27-21, 38-43, 59-53, 71-71, 74-78

Alternative college basketball league

THE GAME OF MY LIFE

By Bill Velasco

(The Philippine Star) | Updated February 4, 2013 - 12:00am

Last year, this writer predicted the emergence of a new collegiate basketball league with different agenda. The new league would push hard for sportsmanship and higher values among its member teams, and create an atmosphere wherein the host school would treat a visiting team as a welcome guest, not hostile invaders. That attitude would be reciprocated in kind by the other member schools, changing the way college basketball is played.

Currently, when one school plays on the campus of another, the visiting team is in charge of the referees. Other than that, they won’t know what kind of treatment to expect. Last year, this column documented no less than five incidents of fistfights in the college preseason, most leading to unfinished games, a couple of them stopped just in the first half. This alarming trend went largely unnoticed by the two dominant collegiate leagues.

On the question of eligibility, the trend now is a rule which only allows protests before play starts. But this begs the question: what if information or a witness disproving documents submitted by player or school surfaces during the tournament? This means the findings will be disregarded, and the persons in question will have gotten away with wrongdoing, all for the sake of the league’s convenience. The show must go on, even if the actors are impostors. No protests, no forfeits. In this writer’s humble opinion, that encourages falsification of public documents like birth certificates.

The new league, initially christened the National Collegiate Basketball League, will have a short tournament called the Founder’s Cup running for one month from the third week of February. Fourteen schools have been invited to attend the initial meeting this week: Angeles University Foundation (AUF), Centro Escolar University (CEU), Don Bosco Technical College (DBTC), De La Salle University, Dasmariñas (DLSU-D), Emilio Aguinaldo College, Cavite (EAC-C), Enderun Colleges (EC), New Era University (NEU), Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU), Olivarez College (OC), Philippine Christian University (PCU), San Beda College Alabang (SBC-A), Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP), Trinity University of Asia (TUA), University of Batangas (UB) and World Citi Colleges (WCC). Most of the schools have been briefed and already expressed interest in joining, but will decide whether to make the jump now or in the full-blown first-semester tournament in June. TIP is hosting the meeting and spearheading the tournament. The league will be run with the help of the Athletes in Action (AIA).

“Though compared to traditional basketball leagues outside the UAAP and NCAA, the NCBL’s league fees are higher for now, because we are implementing protocols that will ensure significant exposure and following,” says TIP head basketball coach and NCBL organizer Potit de Vera. “Heavy TV-Print-Radio-Web media exposure will be pursued actively. And of course, we hope to change the college basketball culture to think long-term, and league first.”

Veteran organizer Totie Andes will be one of the main persons behind league operations, The King’s Team of Nins Bronola and Aaron Subaria will take care of the statistics and the league website, www.nationalcollegiatebasketballleague.com. Once a school agrees to participate in the NCBL, league officials will visit the campus and conduct an orientation to impress upon the coaches and players the protocols to be followed.

“Our aim is to help the coaches and players come from a place of seeing the big picture, not just an emotional response to game situations,” De Vera adds. “If they are protecting the future of the league and the values we espouse, then violence and attempts to circumvent the rules should simply stop. There is no room for them.”

The NCBL has said it is going to be very strict with eligibility and citizenship. For the Founder’s Cup, high school graduates and transferees will be allowed to play right away, along with foreign-born players, though maintaining only two per team, with one to play at any given time. Next season, more rules will be in place to further ensure that legitimate students and Filipino citizens will play. Student-athletes must also have passed at least 24 units from the previous school year. The future status of foreign players will also be discussed.

The Founder’s Cup will also serve as a showcase for possible sponsors and media partners. The upside looks quite good, since schools always seem to be expanding, and the potential for growth is tremendous. Looking down the road, the NCBL may include schools and have its own leagues in the provinces to provide a truly national collegiate league. Later on, the NCBL will be under an umbrella organization (possibly called PASS, Positive Alliance for School Sports) to include other sports.

What is important now is that the organizing team is doing everything it can to bring in like-minded school owners and athletic directors to be exemplars of the values amateur sports leagues say they believe in, but sometimes do not fully implement. That’s the NCBL’s bottomline.
